Daredevil Dave Slots

Daredevil-DaveDaredevil Dave is a game from Wager Gaming. The slot’s theme is built around a stuntman called Daredevil Dave, which is shown on the reels as he drives motorcycles and jumps with them over trucks, or as he is about to be thrown out of a cannon. He’s the kind that entertains people in shows, not the kind that works silently and unseen in movies, behind the main actors. The theme’s topic promises to be fun, but the actual design is somewhat old, so it doesn’t do that well when placed side by side with a modern slot machine.

You will get 20 paylines to bet on, and it’s a game with 5 reels, so all in all it looks like a typical layout. Wager Gaming introduced in it a good range of features, giving you all the usual stuff, from the bonus game and the free spins that have multipliers, to wild symbols and scatters. Add to that the $100,000 jackpot, and you get a pretty good idea of the quality of the slot.

Features of Daredevil Dave

One of the things you will approve of here is the collection of special features, consisting in wild symbols with multipliers, scatters, free spins (also with multipliers) and bonus games.

The image selected for the wild symbol shows us a Number 1 with flames on it. It’s a typical full featured wild, capable of both substituting for other symbols and at the same time doubling the prizes of any combinations that are created with its assistance. Add to that the prizes of 10,000 coins that this wild can put in your pocket, and you can understand why it’s the best symbol the game has to offer. Obviously, the powers of the wild are only going to be useful when dealing with regular icons, the bonus or scatter icons not being affected by it.

The scatter is also very good when it comes to awarding prizes, its biggest reward going up to 500 times the value of the bet. Best of all, it doesn’t have to create a regular combo in order to give you money, it just has to be on enough reels at the same time.

Free Games Feature

You can get access to 15 rounds without paying a dime for them, as long as a minimum of three scatter symbols are in place. That gets you a multiplier as well, which will triple the amount you win from each combination. Retriggering the free spins is possible, but you don’t get the multiplier for the extra rounds.

Bonus Game

You will get into the bonus game when the Bonus Race Car is on both the 2nd and 4th reels, and at the same time on a payline. Multiple paylines that go through the two symbols will multiply the amount you can get from the feature.

Betting options and jackpots

The full betting range is $0.01 to $200. The lowest value is also the smallest denomination of one coin, while the highest is at $10. You use a single coin for each line, so with 20 lines total the maximum bet is $200.

You can win 10,000 coins through the slot’s best combo, or up to $100,000. With the scatter symbols also offering up to 500x the bet, you have a second way to win that $100,000 jackpot.

Design and symbols

I’m not a huge fan of the retro design, not the kind that is used in Daredevil Dave anyway. I’ll give it this though, there are no playing cards on its reels, only images that show us Daredevil Dave and his stunts. You can see him in the logo area, near his car, bike and flying out of a cannon.

Symbols: Number 1 (wild, 10,000 coins), Trophy (scatter, 500x the wager), Race Car (bonus), Jacket (500 coins), Trucks (400 coins), Motorbike (200 coins), Cannon (150 coins), Checkered Flag (125 coins), Helmet (100 coins), Heart (75 coins) and Ring of Fire (50 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

The design is the only flaw I see in this game, but in every other way it’s a good slot machine. There are two separate ways you can get the $100,000 jackpot, there are lots of good features and it’s about a stuntman. What’s not to love?

This Daredevil Dave slot is offered by all online casinos with Wager Gaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
